    SCAFFOLDHelping to support and maintain the world of origami

    Scaffold suffers crash

    As the last issue was being sent

    out, I experienced a mail-server

    problem. Issue 12 went out as an

    unreadable file and my hard drive

    took a major hit. Many files were

    lost. I have been rebuilding as

    well as restoring backup files.

    Scaffold should be back at full

    speed next month.

    Next month I hope to

    introduce a new format to prevent

    your E-mail accounts from getting

    bogged down. I plan to have

    future issues available for

    download on a website. Only the

    current issue will be available asback issues will continue to be

    available at their current sites.

    The new issue will probably be

    available for about seven to ten

    days and then it will only be

    available at the back-issue sites or

    directly from me. I hope this will

    make things a little easier on

    peoples accounts.

    Issue 12About half of the subscribers

    never received Issue 12. Those

    that did receive it were unable to

    open it. Therefore, no one really

    received it. The lost issue has

    been restored and can be found

    online at

    http://www.origami4you.com.

    Wheres My

    Subscription?

    Some of you may be seeing this

    issue but did not receive it in the

    normal fashion. That could be

    because I had to restore an old

    mail list. Some of the newer

    subscribers may have failed to

    make it back onto the list. Also,

    some changed e-mail addresses

    may have been restored to their

    old forms. If you are one of these

    people, just send me a note at

    scaffold1@aol.com and I will

    restore you to the mail list.

    Scaffold still thrives of the modelsof others. Join the ranks of those

    who have already appeared in

    Scaffold by sending your

    diagrams. Scaffold can handle

    most electronic formats but DXF,

    a format created by CAD

    programs, creates some of the

    smallest files.

    Book Review

    One of the most popular new

    books is INSECTS: ORIGAMI

    COLLECTION TOME 1 byLionel Albertino. Like his

    previous book SAFARI

    ORIGAMI, this is a big and clear

    book. Many would classify the

    models in this volume as complex.

    If the number of steps is all you

    are looking at, then these are

    complex, but most of the folds are

    easy with ready landmarks and

    intuitive sequences.

    As expected from Mr.

    Albertino, the diagrams are clear

    and easy to follow while the

    finished models have a wonderful,

    lifelike quality. The only model I

    did not really take to was the Ant.

    I am sure that there is a species of

    ant that matches this model, but it

    is not one that instantly screams

    Ant at me. The rest of the models

    are very pleasing.

    Not all of the models inthis volume are actually insects.

    Also included are a Glow Worm,

    a Grey Slug (a really neat-looking

    model), a Sisphyian Spider and a

    scorpion. The rest of the book is

    filled with crawlers, jumpers and

    fliers from the world of insects.

    From the title of the

    book, the folder hopes that more

    volumes of Mr. Albertinos workwill soon follow. INSECTS:

    ORIGAMI COLLECTION

    TOME 1 (ISBN2-84424-027-5)

    can be easily ordered from Kims

    Crane (www.kimscrane.com)

    The Models

    A little bit of everything this issue.

    Animals, objects, modulars, stars,cutting, dollar bill folds, etc. I

    hope you enjoy this months

    models.

    8-Point Star

    This is another modular star from

    the creative talents of Trang

    Chung. I will warn the purists out

    there that there is some cutting

    involved.

    $ Flying Dragon

    This is another fine model by Jim

    Adams. Look for more designs

    by Mr. Adams in future issues, or

    visit his website at

    http://members.aol.com/jeadams1

    .

    New Penguin

    I was toying with some aircraft

    designs when I saw a penguin

    lurking in the folds. Momentslater, the New Penguin was born.

    Whirligig

    This is another Sonobe unit

    variation that I designed in the

    1980s. The patter reminds me of

    a spinner with streamers trailing

    from the points. This is a simple

    variation and I am sure others

    have come up with the same unit.
